imagine a 3rd party not owned by lobbiests, special interests or big business- I'm all for that!
Or a senator/representative that actually votes the will of their constituants. I can't fault Pelosi or Barbara Lee for that...but we do need a multi-party system because the Democraps & Republicraps 99% owned, imo
In our present system, no good honest person has a chance, or would EVER be in a position to be elected. If they did, they'd probably be shot by some sort of organized darkness.
Which, btw, was stated/discussed by the oft hated Savage one. Any Coast to Coast fans out there?

Well that's a fact - about anyone honest having a chance. Gone are the days when a PResident could be a REAL person. Hell, it is impossible to get elected without making promises and telling people they can get more services for free.The way I see it is BOTH parties are beholden to BIG Corporate money and the means they use to get over on people is playing to the Religious right. I mean what chance does an honest person have when the majority of people that vote actually beleive this country was founded on Christianity? Also the majority of people think their tax dollars go to the poor instead of corporate subsidies.
